CHA - Mikey and Red Heart

Hello everyone! Whew this past weekend at the CHA has been a whirlwind! I got hit hard with cold so thank you for waiting a few days for me to get this post up!! For those that don't know this last Friday to Tuesday was the Craft and Hobby Show in Anaheim, CA. As you can see above I ran into Mikey from The Crochet Crowd in the Red Heart booth. Red Heart has a new motto this year " Make it. Love it. Share it. "

Mikey and Diva Dan were a delight to meet in person! I can not say enough what down to earth real and awesome people they were! I really enjoyed speaking with them at the booth, on the show room floor and at the Prime CHA Networking event.


Arm knitting hit the CHA by storm just about every yarn booth had someone demoing it. Mikey and other Red Heart executives were using novelty yarns for stunning results
I am looking forward to the reflective yarn ! The above picture is without a flash and the picture below is with A FLASH! The yarn is soft and very vibrant.

This yarn looks like it would be really fun to play with and take pictures with!


The cowl and hat were designed by my friend Lorene of Cre8tion Crochet! Kudos for having your design displayed in the booth!!!

Another cool thing coming out ( it is not live yet) is a pattern designer! You get to pick from several looks and what colors you want and then you get emailed a pattern and a shopping list!!!! How cool is that!!
Can you tell Liked the reflective yarn? I just kept taking photos!!

These are some epic yarn balls.... What would you make if you had one???

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
